The Basque Museum was transformed into a production studio for three days. This collaborative action invited participants to produce a contemporary interpretation of the Museum space and collections using tools such as photography, writing moving image, or drawing; using xerography as a basic means of production.
The workshop was designed around six visual exercises encapsulated under these actions: stage (make something visible), unfold (split up, form two or more things by separating the elements that are usually together), annex (join one thing to another with dependence on it), lock up (include, contain), assault (rush suddenly and by surprise) and empty (forming a hollow). As a result of these exercises, the team created a visual field notebook including their experiences, interests and connection with the basque cosmovision.
In this occassion, we counted on two incredible guests: Jon Cazenave, who introduce the idea of flaws regarding the ideas of the museum, identity and territory. Marta Jiménez, historian and head of the Photography department at the Basque Museum, supported the session providing the historical context of the material as well as showing the cataloguing proceedings of the museum which were later challenged by the participants.
